Julian Assange Sentenced to 50 Weeks in Prison for Skipping Bail

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has just been sentenced to serve 50 weeks for skipping bail on charges of sexual assault which were later dropped.

Judge Deborah Taylor told Assange it was difficult to envisage a more serious example of the offence.

“By hiding in the embassy you deliberately put yourself out of reach, while remaining in the UK,”

She went onto say that this “undoubtedly” affected the progress of the Swedish proceedings.

“Whilst you may have had fears as to what may happen to you, nonetheless you had a choice, and the course of action you chose was to commit this offence,”

Assange’s Letter of Apology

I apologise unreservedly to those who consider that I have disrespected them by the way I have pursued my case.

This is not what I wanted or intended.

I found myself struggling with terrifying circumstances for which neither I nor those from whom I sought advice could work out any remedy.

I did what I thought at the time was the best and perhaps the only thing that could be done – which I hoped might lead to a legal resolution being reached between Ecuador and Sweden that would protect me from the worst of my fears.

I regret the course that this took; the difficulties were instead compounded and impacted upon very many others.

Whilst the difficulties I now face may have become even greater, nevertheless it is right for me to say this now.

Assange Rape Allegation

The most ridiculous thing about all this is the so-called Rape Allegation is in fact not what it seems at all – and by calling it so is clearly an attempt to dirty the character of Julian Assange.

The actual charges revolve around two women, both who agreed to consensual sex at different times – however, they both claim that though sex was by consensus Assange in one case did not use a condom as a agreed and in the other case a claim is made that he ‘tampered’ with the condom prior to sex.

This is very different to rape, if true it does raise questions about Assange’s behaviour – but to call this rape is an insult to real rape victims.

What Now?

This first sentencing of Assange if just the beginning, what happens now is anyones guess – but with so many enemies around the World you can be sure it’s far from over for Assange.

We have raised concerns over the authenticity of Wikileaks and Julian Assange in respect to their appearance as being a whistleblowers refuge and voice against the authoritarian and criminal states of the World, these are still concerns we have and what happens to Assange will be an important clue to confirming or dismissing these concerns.
